Awfully short, but is entertaining
The addition of direct action has made the flash much more entertaining. Unexpected twist at the end (and some dark humor) have also assited that. The series is to have a great future. If it is going to release episodes more often.
Good production quality
Overall, the flash is very well made. The style used in it, have proved to be somewhat on enjoyment to look at. The lack of detailed human characters backs it up as well. While the story is a bit strange (it isn't legal for any more, unapproved countries to recieve nuclear weapon research information under the act of blah, blah, blah, M.A.D., etc), it fits for what it is. The atmosphere is well done as well. Although notible, are the overall lack in mentioning of death. Oh well, those can be fixed in farther episodes. Never the less, I look forward for episode 2 and 3, as well. I hope more things will be explained as time goes on.
I just don't know what to say.
Please read this, before rating it down. This is my opinion, so please read through before taking any actions.
Hello. I have seen this flash movie much yearlier, but I have not been ble to produce my opinion on it, up until the end - the Golden Tank Awards. While I am happy what you have ecieved the first prize... it just... doesn't seem right.
Let's take a look at good aprts, first. The graphics are questioning the use of flash in production of the movie. The music is of the same quality. It is a beutifully produced movie, and certainly if this was the main part of entertainment. Sadly, the main part of the movie, the storytelling... that is another matter, entirely.
While the story makes sene on its basics... it just feels plain. It is like reading a folk storie without that voice, telling yuo what is happening. It feels plain and empty. That part brings the score down terribly. Yes, this might seem uinfair - but the main idea of entertainment is to bring out an idea, Waterlollies were only minimaly succesful on that part.
Thank you for reading this review. Good bye.
Illogical and atmosphere requires work
Well, I certainly see that the game was made for its atmospherical alue. Problem is, the game is irratating. The story begins with an in teresting plot twist, and it was a good idea to ask for the name of player, nicely. But then the game goes downhill. First of all - the time limits is very small - and the reminders from the maniac should only come when the player takes too long on a puzzle. The maniac himself has a great voice, mind you - but hearing him talk should not be something happening that frequently. The hands and inventory block the view too much. The ways to solve the puzzles are illogical - you cannot cut off the rope with either an axe and/or the crowbar? Why cannot you fight off the maniac in any way, with items you acquiered? And finally - it is too dark. And finaly, the failure video is horrible. Please, do change the game in a lot of ways to improve the overall gameplay and story elements. Basicly: Improve.
Just a little requiest
Is it possible to allow for you to hit 2 people at once using one attack? It seems weird that I can't.
Very ejoyable runand gun. Even weakest enemies do not die from a few hits, but all of them release many powerups making it equal. While some robots hovewhere are just pure annoyance to destroy, the game is quick and offten quiet challening. Very good try from an author. Hovewhere I believe what ammunition power-up should be worked on. Otherwise the game is fun and challening. Keep this up!
The idea is pretty interesting, I like it....
Heh, now I can understand what he sings actually! Good job there. He also sounds very well, just like he should've. You didn't do much so 8/10... but still - it's worth those 1:39. I can't really say much, but to thank you for actuall giving people thy song... now to slow it down and get the original. Good job.
